Finding out what it is like through the looking glass chatting with "Alice Kingsleigh", the amazingly talented actress Mia Wasikowska. #‎ThroughTheLookingGlassEvent

What was it like to play the iconic character "Alice Kingsleigh"? Recently myself and 24 awesome bloggers got to sit down and have a chat with the star of Alice Through the Looking Glass, the amazingly talented actress Mia Wasikowska. Mia Wasikowska is known for her roles in Crimson Peak and popular period pieces such as Jane Eyre and Madame Bovary among others. Her breakthrough role was in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" and returning in the sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass

We tackled the tough questions like how it is being a role model for young girls and was it like working with Johnny Depp? (Okay that one was not that tough), but it was a fun interview with a down to earth actress who was just as beautiful in person as she is on the big screen.  Mia was soft-spoken and very sweet, we were excited to ask this star of the movie a bunch of questions and she was eager to answer all of our great questions, here are a few of my favorite from the interview.

Question:  Alice, has gotten more independent...  How did it feel stepping back into the role with those changes, with the years that have gone by? 

Mia Wasikowska:  It was great,  I really love Alice and I like seeing her journey.  In the first film, she was a little uncomfortable and trying to bridge that gap between, knowing who she is on the inside and being able to be that on the outside. I think that was her journey in the first film. She's just spend years as the captain of her own ship, and she has a really strong sense of who she is.  Despite the fact that, expectations of her are really low in in her society she manages to hold on to that sense of being worth more than what people want of her. Which I think is really great and important for young girls and boys everywhere. 

Go on a spectacular adventure with Alice Through the Looking Glass now playing in theatres everywhere! #‎ThroughTheLookingGlassEvent

Are you looking to go on an adventure? An adventure unlike any other? To a magical place where just about anything can happen? Well, I have an amazing place you can visit, take the family on an adventure with Alice Through the Looking Glass in theaters today! 
My family and I are huge fans of Alice in Wonderland, from the cartoon, to the live action movie, to the classic books we have always loved the iconic characters and the zany story line. There is just so much going on and these fantastic tales keep your attention and really transport you to another place and time. 
 I have to admit we never read the continuation of the story, and boy were we missing out! With the movie adaption of Alice Through the Looking Glass, Disney brings you through more of "Wonderland" and gives you more of a back story of the characters you love, from the Red Queen, to the Hatter and all the favorites in between. For this movie you will also get introduced to a spectacularly interesting character "Time" played by Sacha Baron Cohen. "Time" was hilarious and stole the movie for me.

Taking a break from real life is just a great thing, sometimes it is nice to just get away. Imagine going far, far away to a magical land where anything can happen. Well, I recently had the pleasure of going on a magical adventure just like that, the red carpet premiere of Alice Through the Looking Glass! With my job, I have been very fortunate to have walked a few red carpets in the past, but let me tell you it gets even more awesome each time you do it. I love my job!
Every aspect of attending a red carpet event is amazing. From the changing red carpet colors, no not all “red carpets” are actually red they can be any color! This cool carpet was red and black, a neat paisley type print. To the star watching, to the spectacular events on the carpet, you just never know what is going to happen at these events and that is what makes them even cooler in my mind… Surprises are always wonderful!
